Almost wednesday.... almost wordless...

Do you think I am a happy girl??

Nope. Not now....

Life is not fair.... *sigh*


Last saturday, when my mom changed my pajamas, she noticed a little bump in my back. And she thought that something had bitten me, maybe a mosquito. I spent almost all sunday doing the "itchy dance" against the sofa. I heard lots of "No Lorenza", "Stop it, Lorenza".
Yesterday I did the same "dance" until my grandma checked me and she saw I had a big and red bump. She called my mom and my mom called my Vet and next thing I knew... I was at the Vet's office having a minor surgery!
He did it only with local anesthesia and I was a very good girl and I let him work. He said a spider bite me! Mean spiders! All of them!
Now, I have a zipper in my back and what is worst... I am naked... and it is cold here!

And that is the reason I could not visit all of you last night but I promise I will do it... now!

Have a good night


Ashley Ashbee said...

That's so scary, Lorenza! Sounds like you were very brave. Did you get a treat after the surgery?

Ruby and Penny said...

Oh my goodness Lorenza. We're glad you're ok. That zipper looks pretty sore.
Sending healing rayz your way.
Love Ruby & Penny

Unknown said...

Ooooh - spider bite, nasty. You poor thing!
I had a tick sucking my blood on the weekend, but it was removed by my dad with big tweezers and didn't really hurt! I got some treaties afterwards, so then I was really happy :-)
Love to you, Patsy xo

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh Lorenza! We feel so bad! It has been forever since we've visited (and no excuse is good enough) and THIS is what we find when we come back! We are soooo proud of you for being such a good patient, but we feel so bad that a spider bit you and this is what happened. (We can't let our Girl know. She'll be even more frightened of spiders than she already is!)

How long will it be until you can wear your pretty dresses again???

Take good care of yourself, Sweet Lorenza.

What a nasty spidey bite, Lorenza... you were really brave to undergo the surgery. Did you try climbing the walls... who knows, Lorenza the Spiderdog!

Licks, hero

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, Lorenza, we're sorry you were bitten by a nasty spider that made you have surgery. We hope your zipper heals quickly.

houndstooth said...

Oh ouchie! I'm glad your mom got you to the vet in time. Try not to scratch it much and let it heal!


*Alex* said...

Yikes! Feel better! Make sure your mom gives you lots of extra snuggles to aid in the healing process. :)

McGillicutty said...

Oh Lorenza, me senorita! Those nasty spiders! Here's to a very speedy recovery! (gulping a sip of Guinness).

Now, me muffur (fur mom) is on the scene. Thanks for stopping by and checking on me. She is something else! She got a makeover today and she is foxy! She will be blogging soon and showing off her new look. Stay tuned...

Irish Love,

Oreo said...

Oh Poor Lorenza!!

Life With Dogs said...

You, naked? That has to be some sort of crime!

Spiders suck. So sorry you had to be sampled by one. :(

Kess And Her Mama said...

Spider bite, yikes! Get well soon. Mum got bitten by a bunch of red ants and it itched for weeks after that!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Oooh. Now you are temporarily a Franken-wiener! I hope you heal quick! Mr. Bufus had a couple of tumors removed one time, and had some big zig-zag stitches on his back, but when they healed, you wouldn't have known they were there unless you really looked for them. I'm sure you'll be back to your beautiful wardrobe in no time!

*kissey face*

Stella said...

Oh Lorenza, what kind of spider did this to you? Where was it? I don't like spiders one bit, not even the nice, non-poisonous ones.

Take it easy , just let the wound heal and you will be fine very soon.


Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

You poor girl....Hope you feel better! We have never liked spiders...but now...GRRRRRRRRRRR

Mollie Jo & Bobo

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oooh poor baby!! We were so worried when we saw your wound.. good thing the vet sorted it out. You are a brave girl.. I hope your mom made you feel better by giving you more cuddles and treats.

Baaaaaad spiders!!!

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

That's scary! I will avoid spiders like the plague now >.<" So sorry to hear you had to go through surgery, but the vet knows the best...hope you'll get better real soon!


Brindusa (Brinda Dasha) said...

Oh, I hate spiders too. What a mean insect to do such a awful think to you. Wish you a rapid recovery.

Daisy said...

My Mind's Eye said...

Be sure to enjoy all the TLC during your recovery.....and you BTW you look lovely w/ or w/o your dresses.

We hope you are all better soon - in the meantime you wrap up warm it is no good having a hole in your fur at this time of year.

You are still beautiful, even with a zipper.

Rufus and Indie said...

A spider? Super Evil! So don't take your zipper off! Get better!

Rufus and Indie


Oh Lorenza,

Bless your heart! That's terrible! Mean old Spider! Just for that, we called Lenny the Lizard and he's on his way to eat that mean old spider up!

Just so you spiders know out there, we pups take care of our own!

Riley and Star.

Unknown said...

Ouchies! What a good girl letting them take her of this boo boo with local anesthesia. I'm very proud of you. Stay warm, and when you heal, you deserve an addition to your wardrobe. What? We get presents when we get boo boos.

Bobby said...

That must have been some spider, now you have a zip, and no clothes. Its okay we made Pip close his eyes.

Fred said...

Oh no! Poor Lorenza! And mean old spider! I hope you are 100% well and clothed soon. Hugs from me, Fred.

Bijou said...

Oh no Lorenza has a boo-boo! We hope it heals up soon so you don't have to be nekkid. Do you have lots of creepy spiders? Our mom freaks out when she sees a spider. BOL


Anonymous said...

OMD Lorenza we hope that you will be OK! Bad spiders, bad bad bad!

Ask your Grandma to cut a hole in one of your old dresses where you boo boo is, that way you can be warm but your stitches will be ok. Just a thought.

We will keep you in our prayers Lorenza.

Hugs and Kisses, Tessa

Clive said...

Sonic said...

Oh no, Lorenza! That's one horrible spider. I hate spiders! I'm just glad that it only bit you... The Beagle from down the road told me that spiders can climb inside a dog's ear and mind-control them! Then we would've lost you forever, Lorenza! And that would make all of us really sad!


River said...

It looks like it hurts! We hope it will heal really fast. Maybe a soft blankie to keep you warm?

love & wags,

Asta said...

Ripley said...

Yuck! Spiders are the worst! Kudos to your mom for taking you to the vet and getting this treated before it got worse. Best wishes for a speedy recovery! Tell your mom you need a fashionable new outfit to make up for the pain and discomfort!

bbes tribe said...

Poor Poor Lorenza, Mean Spiders! Hope you feel better soon. Miss seeing you in you cute clothes.
Hope they got rid of that spider.

Khady Lynn said...

Oh Lorenza!!! How terrible! That looks really painful! And, I don't think I have ever seen you without one of your pretty dresses before!

Hope you heal up very quickly!



Oooo.....I didn't know spider bite, it must be a big one, take care Lorenza.

MJ's doghouse said...

wow Lorenza..you must be totally tough to handle all that. I feel dirty seeing you with no clothes on...maybe your mom can get you a pair of hospital scrubs...I hope you feel better soon..

ocmist said...

Oh, Lorenza, that is so awful! We've got a couple of types of spider that can cause a problems bite around here... Black widows, brown widows, and Brown Recluse spiders. I hope that they got the whole necrotic patch so that you won't have anymore trouble. I'm surprised that they don't let you put on something that would cover it and then you could put on some of your clothes to stay warm. Dott

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Oh Lorenza,

I'm so sorry you had to have surgery but them siper bites can be very bad. You are a pretty as ever and nobody who loves you, and who doesn't, won't even notice it. You are a very brave girl.

It is way to cold for me. Ya wanna come hobernate with me, Twinkie and Frankie Furter?


My Mind's Eye said...

Lorenza how is your zipper today? We hope it isn't giving you too much aggravation...
Hugs Madi and Mom

Oh Lorenza,

I am so sorry to hear that you had surgery. Wow!! Spider bites can be very dangerous. You are one lucky girl! I'm also very proud of the way you held up under your surgery. Way to go!!

How is your mom doing? These kinds of things are much harder on them than they are on you. She deserves lots of kisses.

Good luck in your recovery, Lorenza. Listen to your vet and you should be fine.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Surgery is no fun. But, you are well on your way to recovery now! Bad spider. Bad bad spider.

Mochi and Bali said...

Poor Lorenza! I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner! My secretary has been slacking lately! Those spiders are mean! I hope you feel better soon!


Coco Bean - The Princess said...

I have to agree about spiders being mean! Truffle ate one and she foamed at the mouth like a washing machine that had too much soap in it! It was scary!

It's a good thing that your mommy and grandmother took you to the doctor!
